Introduction

Does your radar automatically classify drones? Right, that’s what we thought.

You want to detect and track drones - small objects which traditional radar can’t see. And even if you’ve managed to find a radar which can see small objects, it’s unlikely it can tell birds apart from drones.

At Robin Radar Systems, we’ve specialised in detecting and tracking small objects for 33 years. Birds actually. And even though we started with tracking birds, we validated our data with drones, in order to prove our radar tracking accuracy.

So we’re in a unique position, with a wealth of experience, to detect, track, and classify (read separate) birds from drones. And that’s exactly what we’ve built IRIS® and ELVIRA®to do.

Where most other radars don’t provide classification of birds and drones, providing a high operator-workload, both IRIS® and ELVIRA® does that for you, automatically.

So you can concentrate on what action to take about the unauthorised drone in your airspace.

ELVIRA®

IRIS®

FMCW
X-Band
Real-time position and track in 3D
2x 12W power output
1.0s track update rate
5km instrumented range

 

Detect Up to 5 km

Need unlimited 360-degree coverage? We’ve got you covered.

Both IRIS® and ELVIRA® cover a full 360-degrees and come with a standard instrumented range of five kilometres.

It can detect larger fixed-wing targets at a range of up to five kilometres, with smaller multi-rotor drones detected at up to four kilometres.

Completely securing an area though, relies on more than just range detection. It requires flexibility and reliability.

Our radars provide unlimited coverage by combining multiple radar devices into an integrated sensor network. 

 

The output from multiple radars is incorporated into one unambiguous picture, meaning a single drone causes a single alarm.

You won’t have multiple confusing alarms being created for a single drone being tracked by several radars.

IRIS® is a 3D radar and comes with a full 60-degree elevation coverage. Know exactly where your target drone is and how high it is. With accurate elevation reporting, IRIS® can cue other sensors and effectors for fast identification and mitigation.

Affordable & Smart

Military capability. A fraction of the price.

Radars are expensive. And military radars are seriously expensive. And not to disappoint you, but you probably shouldn’t be expecting it to classify drones separately from birds.

But it doesn’t need to be that way.

In much the same way that drone technology itself has recently become affordable and accessible, we’ve combined affordable hardware, with extremely smart software, to provide you with a military drone detection and tracking capability, at a fraction of the cost of a military system.

Tracking Exact Flight Paths

Learning curve? More like, operating straight out of the box.

You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to use our drone detection radars. In fact, you don’t even need to be a radar scientist.

We’ve built our radars to be simple, intuitive, and easy for you to use. And that goes for both the hardware and the software.

Our new Drone Viewer software works with both IRIS® and ELVIRA®. It's a browser-based interface, comprising easy to understand colour-coded tracks, and you can even view drone tracks in 3D when using IRIS®.

Red tracks indicate drones and their flight path. Orange tracks represent suspected drones. Green tracks represent birds and other moving targets.

All track types can be toggled on and off, and the track visualisations and colours are all user-configurable.

Oh, and you can, of course, push our drone tracks and alarms, in real-time, to your own external security systems and command and control systems.
